"America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter, and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves." … Abraham Lincoln

 

DJT AND DJU DO NOT CONFIRM THE DJI

We have been reporting the DJU is not confirming the Dow Jones Index. Well, now the DJT is also not confirming it. Yes, the Dow may keep going to 30,000, or it could start crashing tomorrow. Dow Theory works! Dow Theory says the DJI, DJT, and also the DJU must rise or fall together to establish a true trend. The DJU is less important, but still is a good indicator. The DJI fell 500 points in 2 days but no one blinked. This is a portent. The stock market is a  house of cards ready to go. Trust Dow Theory as it predicted the last stock market crash.

 

ALAN GREENSPAN USED TO BE A LIBERTARIAN

 

The following quote applies equally to silver. Before he was a crooked politician, Alan was a good libertarian. Inflation is THEFT. Deficit spending is THEFT. Gold and silver used to protect us from this government theft. Now America no longer has an gold or silver. You must be clear about this. WE HAVE NO GOLD OR SILVER. Nothing protects us any longer from inflation or deficit spending. The Fed printing endless counterfeit green toilet paper. The dollar will soon no longer be the world reserve currency.

 

“--- In the absence of the gold standard, there is no way to protect savings from confiscation through inflation. There is no safe store of value. If there were, the government would have to make its holding illegal, as was done in the case of gold. This is the shabby secret of the welfare statists' tirades against gold. Deficit spending is simply a scheme for the confiscation of wealth. Gold stands in the way of this insidious process. It stands as a protector of property rights. If one grasps this, one has no difficulty in understanding the statists' antagonism toward the gold standard.”

 

No nation is rich enough to pay for both war and civilization. We must make our choice; we cannot have both."

 

WE KNOW WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN, BUT NOT WHEN

 

Anyone who has been reading the Rant is very clear about what is ahead of us. We just don't know WHEN. That's why we have to be prepared today. You can be ten years too early, but not ten seconds too late. We know war is in our near future, nuclear war is down the road, the stock market will crash, the housing bubble will burst, the dollar is worthless, we're up to our eyeballs in debt, the bond market will take down the entire world, and the derivatives insanity is simply incomprehensible. We know all these things because we take a close, hard look at today. We just don't know when. Only God knows when, and He isn't telling!

 

 

THE BIG BANKS HAVE TRIPLED THEIR ASSETS IN 10 YEARS



Ted Butler says J.P. Morgan has 675 million ounces of physical silver bullion in their vaults. This is basically one year of worldwide production.  In 2011 they had none. Notice this corresponds exactly with the manipulation in the last 7 years. Bet with JPM. They may be criminals, but they are very smart criminals.  The COT report on the 19th was the same for silver, but the commercials added 12,000 net gold shorts. They are now net short 50,000 silver contracts and 233,000 gold con-tracts The open interest is 197,000 and 814,000 respectively. On the 26th they added a mere 2,000 gold futures, and are now 235,000 net short. They dropped 9,000 silver shorts, and are down to "only" 41,000 net short contracts. The open interest is 582,000 and 200,000 respectively. This is not good. In the last Rant we said look for a short term fall, and then 2018 is finally going to be good to us after 7 years.

 

FEBRUARY 4 STUPIDBOWL COULD BE ANOTHER GOVERNMENT MUR-DER- THE OLYMPICS, TOO

 

With 100 million brain dead sheeple glued to the stupid tube on the 4th, this would be a perfect time for a false flag bombing. We could blame Iran, ISIS, or just generic Muslim jihadists. This is not a prediction, but simply an observation. The government murdered American citizens at the Murrah Building, on 9/11, in Las Vegas, and other places. They may murder more at the Stupid Bowl. Then we have the International Olympics on the 9th. Another prime chance to murder innocent people and blame, say, Iran. Just be prepared for anything that may happen. Have cash on hand with your supplies.

 

RAY DALIO SAYS BONDS ARE ABOUT TO COLLAPSE

 

Ray is one of the hundred richest men in the world. He runs the largest hedge fund in the world Bridgewater Associates. He is not one of us, and doesn't talk about silver, but he is extremely smart and knows the economy. He told Bloomberg TV that, "the bond market has slipped into a bear phase", and that, "a rise in yield could spark the biggest crisis for fixed-income investors in 40 years." He joints the likes of Bill Gross- the Bond King- and Jeff Gundlach is this warning. Jeff is another billionaire, and runs Double Line Capital. He also says the stock market will fall this year. We need to listen to men like this, as they became billionaires for a good reason. Folks, the bond market is by far the largest regulated market in the world. The derivatives market is even larger, much larger, but is not regulated. When, not if, bonds collapse, the entire world economy collapses with them. Only gold and silver will be real money. Even assets like houses, offices, and real estate vehicles, boats, and planes  will collapse with bonds. That goes for antiques, art and collectibles as well.

 

JAMES STACK SAYS REAL ESTATE IS ABOUT TO COLLAPSE

 

James run a $1.3 billion fund, and predicted the 2008 real estate crash. He is predicting one even worse. Fortunately for us, the home builder stocks are a good bellwether for a coming crash. Right now the major homebuilders have been falling for a month. This could be a blip, or it could be the beginning of the crash to come. Look at this 18 year chart to see the 2008 bubble, and now the 2018 bubble. A real estate crash could happen any time. Watch the major housing stocks like Pulte, DR Horton, NVR, KBH, Cavco, and Skyline. They should predict the crash very clearly as they did 10 years ago. Look at this 18 year chart. The current bubble is bigger than the 2008 bubble.


CHINA DOWNGRADES U.S. CREDIT RATING TO LEVEL OF PERU!!!

 

 

China got tired of watching the Fed print trillions in counterfeit "money 24/7. They downgraded our credit rating down to that of third world sh*tholes like Peru! They hold $1.2 trillion in U.S. treasuries. They aren't buying anymore. They are going to dump what they have. When they do, the U.S. will collapse. Why in the world would anyone buy our useless T-Bills and T-Bonds? That doesn't make any sense at all.

 

THE RICH GET RICHER, THE POOR GET POORER

 

The American standard of living has been falling for almost 50 years now since the 1970 area. The charts below prove this. The "Inequality" chart is right from the Federal Reserve. It proves the median net worth of Americans is going to hell. The second chart shows the top 1% are getting richer, and their wages are going up. The bottom 90% is getting poorer by the day. We do NOT live in a free market, capitalist system anymore. This kind of inequality would not happen in a free, libertarian government. We have a "crony capitalist" system where the Big Boys all work together to scratch each others backs.



US DOLLAR CHART- NEW 3 YEAR LOW



LIBERALISM IS A MENTAL ILLNESS



Doncha just love this photo! This is a perfect picture of a psychotic liberal. Brain cells totally scrambled. Lives in a total fantasy world. Total lack of logic and rational thinking. Hypocrisy is synonymous with liberalism and progressives. They define hypocrites. Do as I say, and not as I do.

 

10 THINGS POLITICIANS AND LIBERALS SHOULD ALL DO

 

Top ten things Democrat and Republican politicians and all liberals should do to prove they're really sincere about how much they "love" everyone:

 

One: Move your family to a diverse neighborhood. Nothing is as wonderful as a colorful mix of various nationalities. This includes "undocumented" immigrants of course.

Two: Surrender all your guns. No more bodyguards.

Three: Immediately get every one of the vaccinations listed on the CDC expanded schedule. That includes your children and your pets.

Four: Obey the Dark Act, which effectively banned Americans from knowing whether their foods are genetically modified. Eat only GMO foods for you and your whole family, because they are safe and well studied.

Five: You and your adult children (women too) go to the battlefield when war is declared. You must actually engage in combat to prove your loyalty to America.

Six: Take your children out of elite pricy private schools, and send them to those wonderful diverse public schools with those wonderful international children.

Seven: No more private jets that cause global warming. Use only public transport. Have a deep analysis done of every wasteful CO2 practice you engage in, and eliminate it. Reduce your carbon footprint. Get rid of extra homes.

Eight: Your whole family is fully covered by Obamacare. No more private health care plans. Obamacare is for everyone.

Nine: Only hire undocumented  immigrants. They dreamed of coming to America for a better life, and it is your responsibility to give them a chance.

Ten: Give away all of all money you have inherited. Inheritance is sinful, and robs the poor. If you're in the top 10% tax bracket, pay 90% of your annual income to the federal government. From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.

 

47 YEAR CHART SHOWS COMMODITIES WILL SOON TAKE OVER

 

This chart is very easy to understand. The bottom three circles are equities (i.e. PAPER). They are winning right now, just like they did around 1970 and 1999. The top three circles show when commodities reigned. This is a major bottom. Paper will collapse, and commodities will take off. That, of course, includes gold and silver. People are finally going to find out paper is worth paper, but commodities are real. This includes beef, pork, copper, wheat, corn, oil, soy, sugar, natural gas, cotton, and others. This cycle could easily last 10 years.



$15 HOUR MINIMUM WAGE WOULD MEAN NO JOBS

 

Andy Pudzer is the CEO of Carl's Jr. He told the media if the minimum wage is raised to $15 an hour there simply won't be any jobs. The restaurants will go to automated computer kiosks. Like what you see in the grocery stores now- self check out. $15 an hour for a low IQ, unskilled, uneducated person is simply irrational and ridiculous. Emergency  Medical Technicians (EMTs) only make an average salary of $15 an hour. These people are highly trained and skilled in saving peoples lives in an emergency. The are often the difference between life and death. They only make $15. YOU CANNOT LEGISLATE AFFLUENCE. You cannot outlaw poverty. Why are we talking about fast food workers? Because half of the people who get minimum wage, in fact, are working in casual eating restaurants. Let the free market decide the wages. THERE SHOULD BE NO MINIMUM WAGE AT ALL. Having a minimum wage is another pillar of communism- everyone is equal. Good luck on that! In 1938 America got the bright idea to mandate a 25 cents per hour minimum wage. That would be worth about $4.20 today.

 

DEMOCRATIC COMMUNIST PARTY/ REPUBLICAN SOCIALIST PARTY

 

In 1848 Karl Marx (a rabbi) wrote the Communist Manifesto. There are Ten Planks to the manifesto, and they are more popular than ever 169 years later. The Democratic Party has gone completely communist. If you think that is an exaggeration, just look at CNN, MSNBC and the rest with their constant talk of progressives, forward, open minded, tolerant, enlightened (!), modern, forward looking collective, reformist and other such terms. Remember that famous blue arrow Hillary loved so much? You say progressive or liberal and never communist. Socialist used to be an insult, but today liberals are proud of being socialists. Look at the 10 planks, and you can see the Democrats have adopted most all of them. They are working hard on the remaining few. You can add banning guns as the 11th plank. The ONLY thing that stands between us and full blown communist totalitarianism today is the fact we have 100 million gun owners, and 300 million guns in  America. The Second Amendment is first and foremost not about home defense, hunting, self protection or anything else- it is about protection from a cancerous government.

 

THE 10 PLANKS OF THE COMMUNIST MANIFESTO

1) No private land

2) Progressive income tax

3) No inheritance

4) Confiscate the property of protestors

5) Central national bank

6) Government communications and transportation

7) Only state manufacturing

8) Industrial armies and everyone must work

9) Town and country must be merge

10) Free education for all

 

The Republicans are the socialist party, and not far behind the communists at all. Trump, for example, is merely less worse than Hillary. He's just a Zionist sock puppet. There isn't one square inch of freedom left on this earth. There is nowhere to flee to. The entire planet is now suffering under socialism, communism, or outright dictatorship. This in itself defines End Times. Yes, it really is End times, and you need to admit it. Jesus isn't coming back, and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are not going to ride thru the sky. The two least worst places to go to avoid nuclear war are Australia and New Zealand. Both are horribly socialist hellholes with pitiful standards of living. The people are even more brainwashed than Americans- if that is even possible. They love their slavery as Aldous Huxley predicted, and cannot live without their chains. The real question here is how can anyone prefer slavery and poverty to freedom and affluence? 



NEW ALCOHOL/DRIVING LAWS WILL PUT EVERYONE IN JAIL

 

The Federal government panel has just advised to lower the legal blood alcohol limit to be dropped to 0.05 from 0.08. All states have a universal 0.08 limit, but Utah just lowered this to 0.05. Go to Utah for vacation and leave on probation. Driving while impaired on ANYTHING should be a felony with mandated jail time in a work release facility. Especially marijuana. Soon pot will be legal or decriminalized in every state. No probation, no plea bargains, no deals for the rich, just mandated felony conviction with jail time in a minimum security work release facility. Driving while impaired causes tens of thousands of deaths every year and countless injuries, many of them permanent. Yes, an impaired per-son can easily and inexpensively be tested for marijuana, opiates, or most anything else with a hospital blood test if they fail the standard field sobriety test. Lowering the alcohol limit to 0.05 will just end up putting everyone in jail, filling the already overcrowded prisons, clogging up the already backloggesd courts,  and making the attorneys rich... while making criminals out of law abiding citizens. Just one more step towards a totalitarian police state. We already  have open container laws in every state. Countries like Sweden, China, and Poland have 0.02%  tolerance alcohol laws because all the socialist sheeple are do depressed they are addicted to alcohol. Using mouthwash can put you at 0.02%.

 

ISIS IS REALLY ISRAELI SECRET INTELLIGENCE SERVICE- MOSSAD

 

The NWO crowd is laughing at the sheeple. The U.S., Israel, and Saudi Arabia created, fund, and sustain ISIS. El Bagdadi, the Head Honcho, is an Israeli Jew. They named ISIS after Mossad so they could fall over laughing about all this.

 

THERE ARE NO FOSSIL FUELS OR ENERGY CRISIS

 

The idea that petroleum, coal, and natural gas comes from rotten plants is so ridiculous, so asinine, so preposterous, it doesn’t even need to be discussed. Hydrocarbons were formed geothermally from carbon and hydrogen. In fact, it is chemically impossible to form hydrocarbons biologically. 99.9% of the world blindly accepts that hydorocarbon fuels come from rotten plants. The incomprehensible oceans of oil in the earth, and volumes of natural gas, and incredible mountains of coal are infinitely too extensive to be formed from rotten plants. There is no energy crisis or peak oil either. The crisis is that we have over 7 billion stupid brain dead subhumans on earth breeding like cockroaches. We need to reduce that down to only a half billion. That's right- 94% have to go, one way or another.  Mandatory birth control could do it. Nuclear and biological war will go a long way here.

 

JIM RICKARDS IS NOT ONE OF US

 

Jim Rickards just wrote his fourth book, The Road to Ruin. Do NOT buy this book. The ads for his books are terrific, but the actual books are total disappointments. Read the ad. Yes, the ad is great, but don’t buy his book. Just hit this link (or copy and paste) and read the ad:

TOM PETTY COMMITTED SUICIDE

 

Tom’s death at 66 was anything but an “accidental” overdose. He was on three kinds of fentanyl, high dose oxycodeine, and at least three other drugs. He hip was broken, and his  chronic pain was so severe he couldn’t bear it anymore. Who can blame him? The gap between effective dose and lethal dose of any opiate is very extreme. Even if you take ten or twenty tablets instead of one tablet, you’ll simply go into a temporary coma. Even a whole bottle of 30 tablets will just make you very sick. He has been cross addicted for years, and his tolerance was very high. The oral lethal dose (LD50) for oxycodeine  for a 150 pound human is 250 X 10 mg (mice) and 700 X 10 mg (rats). The normal dose is 10 mg. Proof there was nothing accidental about this.

STUDENT LOAN DEBT IS $1.4 TRILLION AND GROWING!


This was a purposeful government plan to enslave the young people. Now tens of millions of them will be debt slaves the rest of their lives. They will die with massive amounts of unpaid debt. They will spend their lives paying the interest however.  Yes, they can and will go to prison for not paying up. The courts have already done this by jailing them for disobeying a court order.

GO TO JAIL FOR PLASTIC STRAWS IN CALIFORNIA

You think this is a joke, right? Well just Google "jail time for plastic straws in California" and you'll see the People's Republic is dead serious about  this. Yes, jail time and big fines for giving a restaurant customer a plastic straw. We now have yescalifornia.org, and calexit.org all supporting the secession of Communist California from the other 49 states. Please support all of them and send them money. Seriously, this would be the best thing that happened to America is 242 years. This state is the world's largest mental hospital. The average home in America costs $206,000. In California it is $632,000. The government charges you for every mile you drive your vehicle. They are most in debt per person than any other state- including Illinois. It is a sanctuary state. This entire state is a mental ward full of 40 million mental patients. Whites are badly outnumbered 25 million to 15 million. There are over 15 million Latinos and 10 million "others". They have more poverty per capita than any other state. They used to be the fifth largest economy in the world, but are now down to 7th place and falling.  

AS GOES CALIFORNIA, SO GOES THE NATION. This has been true for 168 years now, and will continue to be true. The state has gone full blown communist. Please support yescalifornia.org and calexit.org. The want to secede, so help them. The best thing we could do for this country is get rid of 40 million commies, illegal aliens, gang members, homeless, liberals, nut cases, and "progressives".

 

87 YEAR CI CHART SHOWS MUCH GREATER DEPRESSION COMING



The above is Barron's Confidence Index going back to 1931. It shows the Much Greater Depression is just around the corner.

 

STEVE WYNN (WEINBERG) MOLESTED 150 WOMEN?



Is this a great example of bad plastic surgery? He is only 74 and looks like a dinosaur. Old Steve was born Steve Weinberg, not "Wynn". Isn't he proud of his ancient heritage? Everyone should be proud of their heritage. He was forced to resign the very powerful position of Chairman of the Republican Finance Committee. The number of women he molested can't be calculated. So far the count could be up to 150. In 2005 he paid a manicurist $7.5 million to drop her criminal charges against him. If he was innocent, why would he pay he an incredible sum like that? Just like Michael Jackson's multi-million dollar payoff to a little boy he molested.

 

GUN DEATHS ARE ALMOST NON-EXISTENT


Abortion (murdering babies), CHD, cancers, cigarettes, medical mistakes, stroke, lung disease, accidents, and hospital caused infections cause almost all the deaths in America. Gun deaths cause almost none at all. Notice that all drug overdoses- not just opiates- also cause almost none at all. A total ban on guns and a total ban on drugs would make almost no difference at all.

 

SILVER IS THE MOST UNDERVALUED ASSET ON EARTH BY FAR

 

There is a very short list of assets you can own. Nearly all of them are paper assets. All paper will be worth paper. Silver and gold have been the only real money for 5,000 years of recorded history now. Stock markets in any country are worthless. Currencies in any country are worthless. We have a commercial and residential real estate bubble. The dollar is collapsing. Bonds are about to implode. Derivatives are going to implode later.  The very home you live in will collapse in value even if you have no mortgage. There is simply nothing on this earth to invest in but silver and gold. Silver is at least six times better than gold. The 78 to 1 gold to silver ratio is going back to the historical, traditional 15 to 1 ratio. Put everything you own into silver bullion you hold personally.  Every year the silver deficit grows. You simply CANNOT exist without silver. Green is demand. Blue is supply. Red is deficit.  Look at the 68 year chart below:


Nothing good is ahead of us. Be ready. Be prepared.
